1. Choose a good office chair
If you start with a home office, the most essential part is the chair you sit in. You often sit in the same position for hours, so the chair has to be good.
Tip 1: choose an adjustable seat. Whether you have an official desk or sit at a regular table, the height of the table is important here. By choosing an adjustable chair you can ensure that your shoulders are adjusted to the ideal height. Back pain caused by a chair is usually caused by the position of your shoulders.
2. Provide enough storage space
Nothing distracts you more than junk and unnecessary stuff in the corner of your eye. Papers you need can easily be put in a magazine cassette, for example. Everything you don’t need can be put in storage boxes. These boxes can be easily stored in a cupboard, storage room or attic.
The less junk in your sight, the less turbulence in your head.
3. Inspiring environment
Houseplants, inspiring texts in photo frames and a subtle colour on the wall. Keep the home office quiet, but not boring. If the space is completely empty and bare you will get bored sooner. You can look at a plant, but at the same time you won’t get too distracted. Perfect!
4. The right light
It is best to work in a light environment. The more natural light the better. Do you often work when the sun has already set? Then make sure you have good artificial light. Make the right combination between yellow and white light. No fluorescent tube above your head!
5. Buy a clock
Yeah, you hear right! According to scientific research, the best way to work is to concentrate for 25 minutes. After these 25 minutes it is important to have a break of about 5 minutes.
6. Use a notepad
One of the few attributes you can put on a desk, without causing too much trouble, is a notepad. Useful for lists. Anything you need to do, but structured. Work-related to do’s, but also some private work you still have to do. Write down everything you still have to do in the notebook. You clear your head. Even if you don’t look at the lists after that
